Real Madrid manager is hesitant to be drawn on how long he will be staying at Santiago Bernabeu as there is consistent talk and rumor about him leaving the club.

Zinedine Zidane has reacted to more inquiries about his future at Los Blancos by bringing up that he isn't "a disaster of a coach", but on the other hand, can't guess how long he will be staying at Madrid. 

The Frenchman has gotten two titles in

La Liga

and three

Champions League

crowns across two spells as Blancos coach and stays in the chase for more wonder down both of those roads this season. 

Questions were asked about Zidane's present contract with the Spanish giant and whether he will stay until the end of that arrangement which is 2022, with many speculations around him indicating connections to

Serie A



Quizzed at a pre-match conference about those who continue to imply that his progress is down to good fortune, the World Cup winner said:

"Am I lucky? Yes, to be here at this great club.

"I don't think I'm a disaster of a coach. I'm not the best either, for sure.

"You might not always do things well, but the important thing is to have passion. Then it can go well or go badly.

"It's important to give 100 percent every day and I do that, but especially my players.

"There's a lot of talk here, but that won't change.

"I would like to talk with you [the media] about football more than we do, but there seems to be more interest in other things. I know you all like football too!"

Real Madrid have come through uncertainty this season to offer themselves chances at homegrown and continental trophies. 

Zidane would seem to have done what's necessary to acquire a lengthy visit in the most requesting of jobs, however, he concedes that the sky is the limit in present-day football.

The 48-year-old added on his future:

"I'm not looking further ahead that tomorrow's match [against Getafe].

"We're focusing on the day to day work.

"You can have a contract of four or five years and be gone tomorrow. Or the opposite. You could have a contract that is expiring and end up staying.

"You don't know anything. When you've said there's a need to get rid of Zidane in the past, well, I'm here.

"I don't know what will happen in three months or a year. I'm here and we have a game tomorrow."
